ahk-scripts

AutoHotKey scripts I have written.

Please note that, these are not full blown applications. Some of them are very specific to some applications, versions and even languages. There is a strong possibility that a script in this repository may work on a system, but not on another.

It is also possible they will behave differently with different keyboard layouts.

So please use them at your own risk.

See the LICENSE file.

Home page: https://github.com/caglartoklu/ahk-scripts

Installation

Copy the corresponding script to a directory of your choice, and run it.

Supported Environments

Windows 7 and Windows 8 has been used for testing. But, almost all of the scripts here automate some applications/platforms, so the exact supported environment varies from script to script. Better to check the source code for the exact results.

Tested with AutoHotkey 1.1.13.01.

Security

Some antivirus software will report the Windows binaries for these scripts as malicious software, such as this one. It is a false positive, they are not. If you are suspicious, simply download the source code in .ahk format, then compile them yourself, or simply use them in their source code form.

Usage

Simply run the corresponding script.

Some of them are triggered by special hotkeys, some of them do their thing when they are executed.

Please see the source code of the corresponding script.

Script Index

youtube-dl-helper.ahk

Download youtube-dl-helper.exe

youtube-dl is an incredible video downloader supporting a ton of online services. youtube-dl-helper.ahk is a simple script providing less typing when using youtube-dl.

To use it, copy the video URL to clipboard, switch to cmd.exe as you would with youtube-dl and type y22 to download the video in high definition. y22 will expand to this, waiting for you to press ENTER:

youtube-dl -t --write-description -f 22 -- "<WHATEVER FROM THE CLIPBOARD>"

The script will perform when the hotstrings are used.

excel2010_untrust_docs.ahk

Automates Microsoft Excel 2010 to clear trusted documents. The script will perform at the moment it is executed.

cmdexe.ahk

Download cmdexe.exe

Provides:

  • ctrl-v to paste
  • ctrl-a to select all
  • ctrl-f to open find dialog

The script will perform when the shortcuts are used.

disable_shift_del.ahk

Download disable_shift_del.exe

Disables shift-delete key on Windows, and switches it with regular delete key. So, whenever shift-delete is used, file will go to Recycle Bin instead. Tested with Windows 7 and Windows 8. On Windows 7, presses yes for the dialog afterwards too.

Reference: http://stackoverflow.com/a/18074871

The script will perform when the shortcuts are used.

snipping-tool-new.ahk

Download snipping-tool-new.exe

Launch the Snipping Tool of Windows and automatically activates New.

copy_path.ahk

Download copy_path.exe

It is a simple script that will copy the files dropped to its icon to clipboard.

recyclebin-shredder-using-mcafee.ahk

When executed, it shreds Windows Recycle Bin using McAfee's Shredder, since McAfee Live Save - Internet Security 12.8 does not place such a right click menu to the Recycle Bin.

firefox_save_in_archive.ahk

Download firefox_save_in_archive.exe

When executed, it overrides ctrl-s (only when Firefox is active) by sending alt-f key for file menu and press g for Save Page In Archive As.

Firefox does not have a Save Page In Archive As method by default. This menu item comes with the Mozilla Archive Format add-on. Since Save Page In Archive As menu item does not have a shortcut, this little script provides one by overriding Save Page As.

Here is a screenshot for the menu structure:

Firefox, MAF, Save Page In Archive Menu

ie_save_in_archive.ahk

Download ie_save_in_archive.exe

When executed, it overrides ctrl-s (only when Internet Explorer is active). It makes sure that the web pages are saved as Web Archive, single file (*.mht).

clean_temp_files_of_ie.ahk

This little script opens the Internet Options and cleans history by pressing Delete button.

disable_modifier_keys

A few simple scripts to disable control, alt and shift keys on your keyboard. These scripts, especially the left ones, can be used to slow you down when the pinky finger is too much stressed under heavy coding.

sleep_after_vlc.ahk

Download sleep_after_vlc.exe

Shutdowns the computer in 10 seconds after VLC Media Player is closed. For this to work, Quit at the end of playlist should be selected in VLC media player, as in the following screenshot:
